by Cheyenne Harding

Nestled in the picturesque hills of Roseburg, Oregon, on the South Umpqua River lies a golf course that truly captures the beauty and charm of this quaint town. Bar Run provides golfers with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and lush greenery.

Bar Run Golf, with its stunning countryside views, has become a favorite destination for golfers of all skill levels.

Once you are on the course, you will be immediately struck by the sense of tranquility and peace that the Umpqua Valley has to offer. The fresh air, chirping of the birds and the gentle rustling of the leaves all come together to create a serene and inviting atmosphere.

With its undulating fairways and fast greens, players must bring their A-game to conquer this course. Bar Run Golf boasts a challenging 18-hole course (designed by renowned golf course architect Dan Hixon) that will test the skills of even the most seasoned golfer.

The course’s signature hole is the par-3 14th, which features a tee box perched high atop a hill, overlooking the stunning Bar Run Valley. Players must navigate a steep downhill shot to reach the green, which is surrounded by a pond on three sides. This hole provides a thrilling challenge and a breathtaking view.

The front nine is relatively flat, however, the well-placed bunkers and water hazards make for a strategic game that will keep you on your toes. The back nine is where the real fun begins: With its rolling hills, narrow fairways and challenging doglegs, this part of the course requires precision and skill to navigate.
